My situation is this: I work with a guy who is VERY Christian. But with our religious differences I wonder if it is even worth pursuing. I grew up in a ' VERY christian' household and understand the faith.
I know that sometimes I get frustrated on here about the way some Christians try to force their religion on people.
Many couples defer resolution of their inter-faith status until later in marriage, perhaps when their first child arrives.
In fact, a New York–based modern Orthodox rabbi recently told me the prospect of his son marrying a non-Jew was "the nightmare scenario." Almost every couple I know, however, is an interfaith couple.
My friends are Catholics married to Jews, Protestants engaged to Buddhists and Hindus dating Muslims. According to the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life, 37 percent of married adults in the United States have spouses from a different religion.
So for every two Jewish women scanning JDate or her local kosher deli for the perfect Jewish man, there is one Jewish woman eyeing a Protestant or a Buddhist.
Inter-faith marriages are those between persons from different religious traditions.
Intra-faith marriages are between two persons from different denominations within the same religion. They come in many varieties: There are no general rules that fit all (or even most) inter/intra-faith couples.
